An Ode to Alan Hudson on ZANI

Walked on Water and Glided on Grass

A football genius of balance and grace,
Self-styled icon and playmaking ace.
Midfield Guvnor with a talent so rare,
Would light up a match with his guile and flair.
Frankie is a one-off, he comes from Halifax,
Lived life in the fast lane, he took it to the max.
Frankie had it all, in every single way,
It was poetry in motion watching Frankie play.

An Ode to Jimmy Greaves

Jimmy Greaves is the greatest finisher that England's ever seen,
He was presician personified inside the penalty area, a goalscoring machine. Greavsie was born on 20th February 1940 in the Capital's East End, And years later shockwaves and tremors through our lands defences Jimmy Greaves would send.

The Busby Babes

At four minutes past three on 6th February 1958 we lost our greatest English team,
Some of the finest young players that our Countries ever seen.
Sir Matt Busby had a vision to give the babes a chance,
And boy did they take it conquering Europe's elite from Russia through to France.

Big C – An Ode to Cyrille Regis

Power and pace a footballing ace,
Frightened defenders all over the place.
Strong in the air a duel if you dare,
Aggressive and tough honest and fair

The Working Man Has Lost His Simple Game

Ain't football changed a couple of generations ago it was such a simple game,
For those were the halcyon days when it was a sport then it changed into a business when the money came.

An Ode to Paul Weller

Paul Weller the King of Mod has reigned for 40 odd years,Since back in the days of stay-pressed trousers and a dodgy pair of flares.
From The Jam to The Style Council to the solo artist as He is right now,Maturing like a vintage wine the Guvnor shows the youngsters how.
